Every Thursday, GMU asks for you. We ask our viewers to write in with any questions you have for our local authorities. Today, Matthew McFarland with Unified Fire Authority, joined Emily Clark, with some fire safety tips in light of recent wildfires throughout Utah and the West.

Here are the top 3 questions you had for Unified Fire:

  1. How does your department prepare for wildfires like these, and when you know to step in?
  2. With the 4th of July approaching, and with an increase in campfires during the summer, what are the most important tips to remember to prevent fires from spreading?
  3. Fireworks can be entertaining, especially during the 4th of July, but they can also be dangerous. What’s the best way to enjoy them safely?
